ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage will be getting a new fire chief.

KTVA reports (https://is.gd/FVY8RZ) Chief Chris Bushue will step down in May. He will become a battalion chief, and said the lower position will allow him more time to spend with his family.

Former Anchorage Fire Chief John Fullenwider will come out of retirement to again lead the department.

Fullenwider joined the department in 1963 and served in several positions, everything from firefighter to deputy fire marshal. In 2001, he became fire chief, a position he held until retiring in 2006.
